Good Morning hope today brings you sunshine. Gosh today is the 1st March where did Februry go I know it is the shortest month but did i blink. Well today being the 1st March means it is St David's Day so to all my Welsh followers hope today is extra special. Sorry I don't speak welsh even though I was born there but my Mum could speak a little but wasn't allowed to go to a welsh speaking school as both her parents where not welsh.
Well today is also time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz and this week it is Nina's turn and she would like to celebrate St David's Day and would like to see either Dragons or Daffodils on your creations.
